Try removing the battery and make sure the player is getting powered up when connected via USB. I've found that it sometimes behaves a bit funny if you turn the player of when it's busy playing a song (instead of stopping play first).

SanDisk Sansa froze on song screen, wont unfreeze

Make sure the player is fully charged. 1. Connect the player to your computer. 2. Make sure the computer detects the player.
NOTE: If needed, switch the player to MSC mode, 1. Turn device OFF. 2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing). 3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the device to the PC.then connect it to the PC. Next Be sure the battery is charged 1. Leave the player connected for approximately 2 hours to charge. 2. Disconnect the player from the PC. 3. Verify if you can turn on the player. 4. Reset the player if necessary.
To reset the player: 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
If that does not do it, re-seat the battery: Then try and see if it will come on with out the battery hooked to your computer, which I see you have done but did you change modes MSC to MTP . next delete the song it keeps hanging on and re-copy it back on to the player from a different folder or re-rip it from the CD and copy it into a new folder then re-copy to the player.

My iPod Nano has had no problems in the past. But yesterday I bought a new cd and imported the songs to my ipod. The cd seemed to have some problems and we took it back to the store because it was freezing...

i can help you with the song part. if you plug in your ipod to your computer and it picks it up. go to tools folder options and click show hidden folders go to ipod control and then go to music and copy all of the songs to your computer!

Freeze ipod

Had the same problem at the weekend there, and my friend told me to hold the menu button and the centre button down at the same time for around 10-15secs, and this will reboot the ipod. Hope this helps you also :)

hi, just want to ask if, before you've dowloaded song to your mp3 have you scan it for possible virus? it's adviceable to scan 1st all dowloaded song before transferring to mp3 player for some of it have imbeded malware and virus. most common virus is the brontok which will freeze your played files then shut it off.

try to download " ESET nod32" anti virus and scan your mp3 for possible virus infection. NOD32 have a free trial and can still work even if the trial period expired.

What's wroooooong???

It sounds like the MP3 player you got is defective. Its warranty should still be in effect, so I would recommend exchanging it for a replacement.

After listening to the first song, i flipped to the next and it froze!

There should be a reset button at the back try this, or hold the power button for several seconds and see if it does anything.

If it's just frozen in on mode you can also wait for the battery to die and then try again.

Good luck.
